Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson has been embracing his role as a veteran and leader this offseason, according to Zack Rosenblatt of The 32-year-old was present for all but one session of voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) practices. 'He's done everything we've asked him to do,' receivers coach Carson Walch said. 'He's been great in the meeting room. Some of our young guys sometimes are in awe seeing DeSean Jackson in our building.'
Huddle Up: Jackson's expected to start on the right side for the Eagles, opposite Alshon Jeffery with Nelson Agholor in the slot. He led the league with 18.9 yards per reception with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season and finished with 774 yards and four touchdowns in just 12 games. His best games have been difficult to predict in the past, but he has a lot of upside as a WR3.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert has looked ready to make a second-year leap into stardom in 2019, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Huddle Up: Goedert, who caught 33 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie after being chosen 49th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, will remain behind Zach Ertz on the Eagles' depth chart as a sophomore. He could prove to be a viable TE2 in deeper leagues and would be an instant must-add should Ertz miss any time.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (wrist) was able to participate in practice Wednesday, June 12. He had been dealing with a wrist ailment.
Huddle Up: As long as Jeffery can stay healthy, and Carson Wentz can also stay on the field, then he will be a decent WR2 or WR3 heading into the 2019 NFL season.

Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (undisclosed) is not practicing because of a lower-body injury but should be ready for training camp, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Agholor likely will be a top-three receiver for the Eagles this season but may not receive a lot of targets because of the other pass catchers on the roster. He can be a late-round pick in fantasy leagues but will not be a weekly starting option.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson is a top candidate for the punt returner job this season, according to special teams coordinator Dave Fipp.
Huddle Up: Jackson should have a role in the passing game, so it is not known if he will be the full-time returner. He is still a deep threat because of his speed and could be a late-round option in fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/06/2019 11:06 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz signed a four-year contract extension with the Eagles Thursday, June 6, that will run through the 2024 season. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Wentz has struggled with injuries over the last few seasons but has played well when he is on the field. He should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues in 2019.
Posted 6/03/2019 7:06 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is 'locked in potentially to a return to MVP form,' according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Head coach Doug Pederson echoed similar sentiments with reporters recently as well.
Huddle Up: Wentz missed five games last season due to a back injury and has been sidelined for eight total since playing all 16 as a rookie in 2016. With that said, it's hard to ignore the weapons he has at his disposal - Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Zach Ertz, among several others - or the solid offensive line he has protecting him. If he can play a full season again, it is quite possible Wentz can produce at a high-end fantasy QB1 level.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has no limitations in organized team activities, according to head coach Doug Pederson.
Huddle Up: Wentz a year-and-a-half removed from a torn ACL that wrecked an MVP season. This will be a prove-it year to show that peak wasn't smoke and mirrors. He's a high-end option at the position with top-two upside and a mediocre floor.
Posted 5/18/2019 11:05 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz has started contract extension talks with the Eagles, but the two sides are not close to an agreement at this point.
Huddle Up: Wentz is under contract for a few more years but could receive a contract extension before the start of the 2019 season. Wentz has played well when he is healthy, but he has deal with injuries over the last few seasons. He can still be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues this upcoming season.
Posted 4/29/2019 8:04 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz's fifth-year option was exercised Monday, April 29.
Huddle Up: Wentz has played well when he is healthy but has missed time each of the last two seasons because of injuries. He can be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in fantasy leagues, but fantasy players may want to draft a solid backup because of Wentz's injury history.
Posted 4/24/2019 5:04 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor could be traded if the Eagles select a wide receiver during the 2019 NFL Draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Agholor has been pretty consistent over the last two seasons with at least 736 yards in each of the seasons and 12 touchdowns over that span. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for a team if he is traded and could be a late-round fantasy option in 2019.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Jordan Howard has been knocked for a perceived deficiency on runs out of the shotgun formation, but 2018's stats don't back that up. Last season, Howard rushed 138 times for 570 yards (4.13 yards per carry) out of the shotgun and ran 111 times for 364 yards (3.28 ypc) when the quarterback was under center.
Huddle Up: Howard will be fine running out of any formation, but of more concern to his fantasy value is the Eagles' recent tradition of rotating multiple backs. Put him down as a solid RB3 for now with definite RB2 potential.

Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 28, in exchange for a 2020 sixth round draft choice, according to a source. The draft choice has a chance to become a fifth-round draft choice based on undisclosed conditions.
Huddle Up: The Bears have Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis as their main running backs at this point, but they likely will look to add another running back in free agency or the 2019 Draft. Owners will need to monitor the situation, but Cohen and Davis should have fantasy value in 2019.
Posted 3/26/2019 8:03 pm UTC
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard still has a role with the Bears, but he could still be traded nonetheless, according to head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: Trade talk involving Howard has waned recently, but he's seemingly not as valuable to Chicago's offense as his counterpart Tarik Cohen. It's not that Howard has necessarily under performed. He's scored 25 total times and averaged over 1,312 yards in his first three seasons. He's a solid standard RB2 assuming he stays in Chicago.
Posted 3/26/2019 12:03 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is a player the Eagles would like to sign to a contract extension at some point, according to general manager Howie Roseman.
Huddle Up: Wentz has missed time in each of the last two seasons because of injuries but is still the team's long-term option at quarterback. He has played well when he is healthy but is risky because of his injury history. He can still be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/22/2019 1:03 am UTC
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is unlikely to have a role in the offense if he remains with the team in 2019, in the opinion of Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.
Huddle Up: Howard has always struggled to make an impact in the passing game, and after regressing as a between-the-tackles runner last year, the Bears don't have much incentive to feature him in the offense. Feel free to take a flier on him in the final rounds of drafts, but don't count on him to be a contributor for your fantasy squad.

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeSean Jackson said Thursday, March 14, is 'excited' about re-signing with the team and blamed his 2014 offseason release on former Eagles coach Chip Kelly, not general manager Howie Roseman. 'One thing I can say about Howie Roseman, we always had a great relationship,' Jackson said. 'Even when I went on and played in Washington and played in Tampa Bay, anytime I was able to see him on the field pregame, he always came up and just gave me a hug. Once again, it was a bittersweet situation. We all know how I was released.'
Huddle Up: Jackson, now 32, was limited to 12 games and caught only 41 passes -- the second-lowest mark of his 11-year career -- but did average a league-best 18.9 yards per reception. There is ample competition in Philly, though, for targets so don't count on Jackson being much than a big-play dependent WR4 once again.
Posted 3/13/2019 10:03 pm UTC
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson was officially acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles Wednesday, March 13, in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round draft choice. The Eagles also received 2020 seventh-round draft choice in the trade.
Huddle Up: Jackson returns to the Eagles and should be a deep threat on the outside for Philly in 2019. He should be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/12/2019 2:03 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor is expected to remain with the Eagles and may not receive a new contract, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Agholor likely will be the slot receiver for the Eagles with Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson as the outside receivers. He has posted at least 700 yards in each of the last two seasons and 12 total touchdowns in those two years. He may see a decrease in targets with Jackson joining the lineup but could still be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver.
Posted 3/11/2019 9:03 pm UTC
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson will be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, according to sources. It is not known what the Buccaneers will receive in the trade.
Huddle Up: Chris Godwin will receive a bigger role in the passing game with Jackson leaving. He was targeted 95 times this past season and finished with 842 yards and seven touchdowns. Godwin has a chance to be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues and could become a weekly starting option.
Posted 3/09/2019 1:03 am UTC
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston said he hopes WR DeSean Jackson remains with the team in 2019, and he called Jackson one of the 'best deep-threat targets' in the league.
Huddle Up: Winston and Jackson have never been able to click on a consistent basis, and Jackson has made it clear that he wants out of Tampa Bay. Wherever he ends up, Jackson is likely going to be a big play-dependent WR3.
Posted 3/07/2019 5:03 pm UTC
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is the subject of ongoing trade discussions as of Thursday, March 7, per league sources, after multiple teams approached the Bears at the NFL Scouting Combine to inquire about a possible deal.
Huddle Up: Howard has been a top-10 fantasy back in all three of his seasons in Chicago, but last year he hit career season lows in rushing yards (935), touches (270) and scrimmage yards (1,080) while matching his 2017 total of nine TDs. He'll likely still be involved in a RB split if he's traded, but he'll be a RB2 consideration regardless given his nose for the end zone (25 TDs in three seasons).
Posted 3/04/2019 4:03 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor likely will not play at his current cap number of $9.387 million in 2019, according to beat writer Jeff McLane. The team picked up his fifth-year option last year, but it's likely they'll re-work his contract or release him. McLane adds that the team could try to trade him, but his salary will probably scare off teams.
Huddle Up: Agholor saw a decrease in production once the team brought in Golden Tate mid-season, but he still managed a career-best 64 grabs on a high of 97 targets for his career, and he just missed setting a new yardage high with 736 yards. He also has 12 touchdowns over the past two seasons, and he has missed just one game over the past three years, so his durability is nice. Whether he is back in Philly, or with another organization, we know what he is by this point. He should only be targeted as a WR4 or WR5 in the final rounds on draft day in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.
Posted 3/04/2019 4:03 am UTC
Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (back) is expected to be healthy by the start of workouts in mid-April, sources close to the quarterback said Sunday, March 3.
Huddle Up: Wentz has been unable to make it through the entire regular season in each of the past two years, and now the Eagles do not have a savior in Nick Foles, as he will be allowed to pursue opportunities elsewhere. You can expect the Eagles will be very, very careful with Wentz during the offseason and into training camp. When healthy, he has low-end QB1 fantasy ability.
Posted 2/27/2019 11:02 pm UTC
Chicago Bears RB Jordan Howard is reportedly on the trade block, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.
Huddle Up: After initially seeing more work in the passing game than he ever did his first two seasons, Howard became more of a glorified early-down and goal-line pounder as 2018 progressed. He did pick up the pace as the season came to an end, but he's still a one-dimensional running back playing for a coach in Matt Nagy who wants his runners to contribute in all areas. If he is traded this spring, he'll likely bring back a Day 3 pick.
Posted 2/22/2019 8:02 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles exclusive rights free-agent PK Jake Elliott signed a one-year contract with the Eagles Friday, Feb. 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Elliott has been a solid fantasy kicker over the last few seasons and likely will be a weekly starting option for owners in 2019.
Posted 2/12/2019 4:02 pm UTC
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor will cost $9.38 million against the salary cap in 2019 under his current contract, and the Eagles are likely to trade, waive or give him a multi-year extension to avoid that hit.
Huddle Up: Agholor hit four-year career highs with 97 targets and 64 receptions this past season, but that only resulted in 736 yards and four TDs, so don't be surprised if Agholor has a new home with Golden Tate's contract also up.
